    I have two head microgel radical pros and I wanted to make sure they weigh the exact same amount in grams. I was thinking item number 150275922790 . Would that work or would that racket be too long for the scale too hold? That one is only $12.50 with shipping so I hope it would work.

    Thanks

    Between the cheap scales I found a digital food scale to be the best. You can get them around $25-$30. You have to look at just how accurate the scale can measure to. I found most of the cheaper ones were not very precise (for matching tennis racquet weights).

    I recently purchased a CH2000 scale from z u r b s . c o m. It claims to be accurate to within 0.1gms and it gives me a consistent reading of all my racquets. only $19 plus tx and Shipping.

    I've purchased a scale similar to that one from the Bay, and the only real issue is getting the racquet to balance without touching the floor/table you're measuring on. I find using the plastic tray helps to provide more space to balance.

    Other than that, they're a good deal for $10-$15 a scale.
